Health & Safety Moment - Home Safety

Sadly, injuries are the main cause of death for young children. What's dangerous depends on a child's age and abilities.

Safety during an emergency: 

Be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours during an emergency. 

• Develop an emergency plan and follow it. 

• Have an emergency kit on hand. 

• Make sure you are safe before assisting others. 

• Listen to the radio or television for information from local officials and follow their instructions. 

• Stay put until all is safe or until you are ordered to evacuate.
